Vermont hospital uses trailer as temporary laundry solution

Copley Hospital in Morrisville, Vt., needed a new way to clean its 300 loads of laundry  after learning its laundry vendor was closing, according to the Health Facilities Management website.

The hospital goes through 6,000 pounds of laundry in one week.
